Making an injury claim
Claims must be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in most cases.
In order to win a Middlewich personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
Usually a injury claim can take months to agree a settlement and in serious injury cases, some claims can take over a year. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), but the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Your solicitor should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to give expert legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
What should you consider when checking reviews for solicitors in Middlewich?
Discussing you claim with a solicitor is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Before you call, checking personal injury solicitor reviews should give you a better idea of the level of service on offer.
Does the location of the personal injury solicitor matter?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that will need to be performed locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
